The 2022 Live Art Prize shortlist & Shortlist LIVE! Programme

ANTI is proud to present the four shortlisted artists for the 2022 ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art and their performances in the Shortlist LIVE! Programme taking place in Kuopio between 13th and 18th September 2022.

The nominees for the 2022 ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art are: Zinzi Minott (United Kingdom), Latai Taumoepeau (Tonga/Australia), Liz Rosenfeld (United States/Germany)and River Lin (Taiwan).

“All four bodies of work stand formidable in relation to the most urgent issues of the contemporary moment, offering audiences recalcitrant poetics in the service of deep healing and meaningful strategies for survival. Social, political and geographical ecologies serve as a focal point, and allow us to be present with the trouble and potential of the present, to be present with the lineages we sustain and present with each other as cohabitants of dangerous times”, the shortlisting committee, Season Butler, Madeleine Flynn and Gregg Whelan, writes about the shortlist.

We are excited to present the 4th edition of the Shortlist LIVE! Programme: the nominees’ performances will be experienced live during the ANTI Festival taking place in Kuopio, Finland.
